    Hello everybody. I've recently developed an interest in acquiring a PSP for playing emulation games, particularly Sega Genesis games. I've been trying to read as much as I can, but I'm still somewhat confused. I was recently able to acquire a used psp1000 with firmware 5.03 (never updated).

    1.) In order to use emulation software/play genesis games, is "hacking" required, or can I simply install emulation software?
    2.) If "hacking" is required, what is the simplest procedure for my particular setup?
    3.) Does "hacking" a psp allow for any other actions besides playing emulators?
    4.) What emulation software do you guys recommend for Sega games (Sega CD would be nice too). I've heard "Picodrive" mentioned a few times.

    -Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise. I'm looking forward to handheld gaming!

    -Dan

    1. You would just have to install cfw(custom firmware). Its a simple task.
    2. You'll just need a usb cord and a memory stick so that you can transfer the necessary stuff to your PsP.
    3. Yes, cfw will allow your PsP to do many things it could not normally do.
    4. I guess you could go with picodrive.

    Thanks for sharing. So if I understand correctly....my currry ent firmware is not ideal..and I need to upgrade to 6.60 prior to hacking? Is an upgraded 2 or 4gb memory necessary prior to attempting this?

    Looks like my PSP is a 1001 model. Does this mean that the pandora battery is the only way to hack?
